10 Things You Need to Get Your Bacon Out Of (Including My Bedroom)

Continued from here

I *get* it that we are a generation who are raising a generation for whom the word “moderation” only applies to blog conference panels, but I think we all have a collective problem with taking things a little too far.

I mean, look at Pinterest. One day it’s a fun place to tag that handmade Christmas card you don’t want to forget about, and then next day, it is the Single! Greatest! Things! to Ever! Happen! to the Internet! and then one more day later, Momma say Pinterest is Da Debil.

We take good things and we make them clip art crap. We did this with religion, politics, the ozone layer, the letter Z, zombies, reality tv, ninjas, meals that come with toys, A&E, Christmas, and we are now doing it with breakfast meats.

My guess is that we are an undefined generation raising an undefined generation and so we are grasping at something to define ourselves by, and that we put more credence in the phrase “you are what you eat” than we do “everything in moderation.” But you know what? I don’t want to tell my kids I’m part of Generation Bacon.

Bacon lubricant is too far, people. It’s TOO FAR. So are each and every one of these things.
